In CHD & Culture
I discussed this on Facebook maybe a few weeks ago, but I want to discuss it here. I get Cancer let alone Childhood Cancer is horrible, but what about us? I never see anything on tv about CHD. Do people in the media other than Jimmy Kimmel think we don't exist? Why isn't there more money going to CHD? There is a very rare cancer that affects newborns, I get that, but what about the kids who are born with CHD? Even when we have surgeries to fix our hearts, it's not completely fixed, we still have to go to the doctor, have tests done etc for the rest of our lives. Do people not realize it's a lifelong defect? Cancer can be cured and never come back. CHD can't.
